Wolfgang Mozart was a well-known Austrian composer. He was a genius.
Mozart was born in Austria in 1756. His father was a musician. When he was a child he began to show his wonderful talent for music. He tried to play the clavier, when he was three years old. He took a great interest in his sister’s music lesson. He heard music and tried to play it himself by ear. His father decided to teach him to play. When he was four years old he started composing his own tunes. He played them on the clavier well too. When he was six years old his father decided to take him and his sister to the big cities in Europe.
Two children gave concerts there. The audience was delighted when the small boy was playing. Mozart visited many countries with his father, playing clavier. When he was fourteen he was invited to Italy. He could not imaging his life without music. He composed many sonatas and symphonies in Italy. He composed tunes all the time.
